According to a recent PwC study, only 3% of females say a career in technology is their first choice. At the same time, there is a looming digital skills gap, with two-thirds of UK CEOs claiming to have difficulty hiring people with digital sills.
The TTC requires organisations to commit to a set of undertakings that aim to deliver greater diversity in the tech workforce of the UK, including inclusive recruitment and retention processes, working with other signatories to develop, share and implement policies which encourage diversity, as well as measuring and sharing their employment diversity data.
Rainmaker CEO, Jan Joubert, said:
“We are in the business of change. Change in ways of working, in culture, in processes, in technology and in how businesses operate. Which is why we actively look for people who think differently, see differently, and together bring a breadth of experience and perspective that cannot be matched. Diversity is at the very heart of everything we stand for.
“That is why we are delighted to sign the Tech Talent Charter, to demonstrate Rainmaker’s commitment to actively increasing gender diversity in the UK tech and digital sector.”
